Abstract

Remote sensing technologies can provide objective, practical and cost-effective solutions for developing and maintaining REDD+ monitoring systems. This paper reviews the potential and status of available remote sensing data sources with a focus on different forest information products and synergies among various approaches and evolving technologies. There is significant technical capability of remote sensing technologies but operational usefulness is constrained by lack of consistent and continuous coverage, data availability in developing countries, appropriate methodologies for national-scale use and available capacities in developing countries. Coordinated international efforts, regional cooperation and continued research efforts are essential to further develop national approaches and capacities to fully explore and use the potential remote sensing has to offer for REDD+ forest monitoring
